Here is a newcomer to the market of battery-powered portable air conditioners. It is the Arcsist F4, a 2200 BTU portable air conditioner that can run on minimal power use of 180 watts, which, among a handful of other attractive features, makes it unique from the Zero Breeze Mark II and EcoFlow Wave 2.
The Arcisit F4 is a handheld and highly compact power station that weighs just 13 lbs, which definitely makes it one of the most lightweight portable air conditioners out there. The compressor under the hood is a reliable Panasonic 3.0 Micro-Rotor Twin compressor that can cool your small living spaces very quickly.
A 720 Wh detachable battery pack is what powers the 2200 BTU portable air conditioner.
Well, you can recharge the battery with solar panels, apart from other charging options like a wall socket, carport, and Type-C 100-watt USB port. The solar charging input it supports is up to 120 watts, which is pretty much lower than the EcoFlow Wave 2’s 400 watts.
Once fully charged, the battery can run the AC for up to five hours.
To your surprise, the price is the biggest attraction of the Arcsist-F4 air conditioner.
Unveiled on Kickstarter, it comes at a rate of just $500 for early buyers, and the retail price is also surprising as it will carry only $699. With the battery included, you can get the AC on Kickstarter for just $800, which is when its rivaling models from Zero Breeze and EcoFlow are priced at around $1000 for the AC unit only.
